J&J Truck Bodies & Trailers, a division of Somerset Welding & Steel, announced the company is manufacturing 130 barrel (BBL) pressure vacuum tank trailers in addition to J&J’s 110 BBL mounted tanker. The J&J DynaHauler PVT 130 BBL tank trailer is engineered to withstand the rigorous demands of gas and oil field service work. From the full penetration submerged arc welds to the Cor-Ten suspension sub-frame, the J&J 130 BBL tank trailer is a sound investment for oil and gas field service operations in the Marcellus and Utica shale, and beyond, according to the manufacturer.

J&J customers working in oil and gas field service showed interest in a tanker option with increased hauling capacity and over-the-road capability.

“Our goal in this project was to market and produce a high-capacity, fifth wheel tank trailer that is among the best in the industry, with an emphasis on producing multiple-unit orders,” said Bill Riggs, president of Somerset Welding & Steel. “The demand is already high, so we’re optimizing our production schedules to meet customer needs.”

The first J&J tank trailers were delivered to Hill International Trucks LLC, a vocational truck dealer located in Eighty-Four, Pa. “J&J worked with Hill International to introduce the J&J DynaHauler PVT 130 BBL tank trailer, and our customers are pleased with the construction quality and workmanship,” said Kevin Donelli, general manager at Hill International.

The standard J&J tank trailer features include .


25 in. (.6 cm) steel heads, shell and anti-surge baffles. It is equipped with a Fruitland RCF 500 vacuum pump, LED lighting, three manways, a cold weather sump package, and Shermin Williams Genesis paint. Popular options include a full-length catwalk, aluminum hose trays, interior tank liner, tool boxes and on-board scales. J&J also can install wetlines, available through J&J Truck Equipment.

The J&J 130 BBL tank trailer adds to J&J’s expanding line of oil and gas field equipment including pressure vacuum tanks, mobile hydraulic fracturing trailers, winch trucks, mechanics trucks and lubrication trucks.

Family-owned and operated, J&J is located in the heart of the Marcellus Shale and is dedicated to producing severe service vocational trucks to industries ranging from oil and gas exploration to mining, construction, waste management and municipal service.
